Per reports, the entirety of the post-production work has now been completed by the makers, and they have also submitted the final copy to the streaming service.
Talking about the project, Ali Fazal had recently said they could feel the pressure to deliver. "We were always the underdogs and there was always immense love from the audience. But now the show is considerably delayed...Through the lockdown, fans have been after us. We can feel the eyes on us, and I hope the audience is a little generous," he said.
